  • The Social Media Conundrum

    01/21/2021 7:26:05 AM PST · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | January 21, 2021 | Emmett Tyrell
    It is a reflection of the vulgarity and even the criminality now stalking our society that social media, as it is called, cannot extricate itself from this awful question of censorship. Facebook, Twitter and all the other social media platforms that are passing judgment on what Americans say today are in the pickle that they are in because the First Amendment freedoms are extended to pornographers, common criminals, political psychopaths and run-of-the-mill conservatives. Soon, if the social media tycoons have their way, their censorship will extend to ordinary liberals, butterfly collectors and, who knows, maybe even stamp collectors. You do...
  • Google-Funded Conservative Groups Urge Congress to Avoid Antitrust Action Against Big Tech

    A group of “free-market and low-tax advocates” are urging House Republicans to back off plans to take antitrust action against Big Tech companies. The Washington Times reported the “conservative activists” authored a 10-page letter to Republican U.S. Reps. Ken Buck (CO), Matt Gaetz (FL), and Andy Biggs (AZ) and it said in part: We fear that today, both sides of the aisle are pushing for the weaponization of antitrust, either as a tool to punish corporate actors with whom they disagree or out of a presupposition that big is bad.

    Currently using Google Voice for my husband's micro business with an obihai box over IP. Wondering it that number is portable to a different service? Just looking at my pi-hole's query logs shows lots of google activity. No longer trust Google voice not to boot us off aka in Parleresque, Amazonian fashion. Any advice? Thanks in advance.

    Trump’s Silenced Majority – The Voiceless, Voteless, And Canceled Governed No Longer Consent Posted on January 16, 2021 by TMH By: Daniel John Sobieski The violent storming of the Capitol cannot be condoned but it must be explained as so many posturing Trump critics and haters are unwilling to do. Just what do you expect will happen when 75 million Americans are told their votes don’t matter and can be stolen without consequence or concern, that their voices don’t matter and can be silenced at will and that now they must be punished for supporting the candidate of their choice...

    The Big Tech giants of Silicon Valley have overreached in pushing far-left positions, sending a message to conservatives: you’re not welcome. It became patently obvious yet again last week when executives from Google parent company Alphabet essentially said conservative viewpoints are illegitimate.Alarms first sounded for conservatives when Mozilla, creators of the Firefox browser, fired their CEO over his financial support of California’s Proposition 8—a referendum against recognizing gay marriage that a majority of Californian voters passed.Silicon Valley went full tilt in 2016, when several Big Tech CEOs and board members called a closed-door meeting to strategize on how to keep...
  • Google Is Evil

    01/17/2021 3:27:45 AM PST · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | January 17, 2021 | Derek Hunter
    Famously, Google’s motto is “Don’t Be Evil.” Maybe “famously” isn’t the right word. "Hilariously” is more appropriate because Google is, in fact, an evil company. But it’s not just Google. Name the tech giant and they are pretty much working in ways that are detrimental, if not downright destructive, to the United States of America and the freedoms we hold dear. Google not only tracks every keystroke you make, but it also manipulates your worldview without you even knowing it. The biggest problem with Google is the monopoly control they have over internet searches. They control almost everything people see...

    This week Dr. Thomas Lifson’s blog, American Thinker, announced that it was closing its comments section.It is news to almost nobody who reads American Thinker that a political witch hunt is underway. Parties in and out of government are looking for excuses to suppress and destroy voices that oppose the left.Because AT lacks the ability to monitor comments in real time, and because our position that comments are a forum, not something we publish, is being called into question, we can no longer publish comments.We take this action with a heavy heart.This was followed up by a statement by Deputy...

    Interestingly this was published on website in 2011. It was part of Hillary’s State Department training given in Mexico City. This conference sponsored by Hillary’s State Department and Google. Training was provided to youth activists in the use of social media. Special classes were held in the use of software designed to evade government surveillance. This software is called TOR, funded thru Google, US Naval Research lab and George Soros’s Human Rights Watch. This is the same software WikiLeaks uses and is illegal in the United States per the Patriot act. This was archived since it has been scrubbed...

    On the heels of the breach of the U.S. Capitol, Big Tech companies have swiftly censored the President, the emerging social media platform Parler was effectively shut down, and there are growing calls for no-fly lists. Does the assault on the Capitol warrant such a response? “We’re living in a gigantic lie that is reminiscent of the Reichstag fire,” argues talk show host Dennis Prager, founder of Prager University. This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

    Like Fox News and other right-wing media, KMOX must be identified as one of the fomenters of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. The criminal actions undertaken by the mob were fueled daily by the hatred and lies of Rush Limbaugh and those listeners who follow him. The station is now a shameful part of our local legacy.

    Google is under fire for removing some local news content from its search results in Australia as part of an "experiment", in what critics called a "chilling illustration" of the firm's power. The incident is the latest in an ongoing spat between Google and the Australian government, which is considering forcing it and Facebook to pay local news providers for displaying their content. Shortly after the law was proposed early last year, Google added a notice to its site warning "the way Aussies search every day on Google is at risk." On Wednesday, Google said it had been "running a...

    SubStack ^ | 1/12/2021 | Glenn Greenwald
    Critics of Silicon Valley censorship for years heard the same refrain: tech platforms like Facebook, Google and Twitter are private corporations and can host or ban whoever they want. If you don’t like what they are doing, the solution is not to complain or to regulate them. Instead, go create your own social media platform that operates the way you think it should. The founders of Parler heard that suggestion and tried. In August, 2018, they created a social media platform similar to Twitter but which promised far greater privacy protections, including a refusal to aggregate user data in order...

    OAKLAND, Calif. - Alphabet Inc’s Google said it would support President-elect Joe Biden’s efforts to pass a new U.S. immigration law and would help cover application fees for immigrants seeking lawful work under a threatened government program. Google said on Wednesday it would pay for the application fees of about 500 young immigrants seeking employment under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. It comes as Google and other big U.S. employers transition from four years of criticizing outgoing President Donald Trump for restricting immigration policy and undermining the companies’ ability to hire foreign-born workers. “We will support efforts by...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats' move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is "done" and "furious" with him, sources familiar told Fox News. It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict. One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump. Another source told Fox News that McConnell...

    Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen is demanding that Google kick President Donald Trump off of YouTube, claiming that banning the president on all social media is necessary to save democracy. Cohen — who is Hollywood’s most outspoken proponent of increased online censorship against conservatives — tweeted his demand on Monday, just days after Twitter and Facebook removed the president from their platforms. “Virtually every social media company has removed Trump…EXCEPT YouTube,” he wrote. “Trump’s YouTube channel is STILL showing videos of his election lies to MILLIONS of people!”

    On January 8, in the wake of the protests two days earlier at the U.S. Capitol that left five dead and derailed congressional debate over election fraud, Twitter and Facebook permanently banned President Trump from their platforms. Jack Dorsey, the scruffy billionaire CEO of Twitter, apparently banned Trump while vacationing in French Polynesia. This action by Twitter and Facebook, while shocking, should not surprise anyone. This is the latest salvo in a war that began the day Trump declared his candidacy. In a series of calculated escalations that will be recounted here, Big Tech has achieved something that would have...

    Can right-wing populist sentiment be banished from American life by the brute force of social-media censorship? We’re about to find out. After Wednesday’s mob invasion of the Capitol that disrupted the counting of electoral votes, big tech firms have moved, aggressively and in unison, against Donald Trump and his supporters. The companies say they want to marginalize the violent fringe, but their censorship will grow it instead. On Thursday and Friday came the Facebook and Twitter bans of Mr. Trump. Given the extraordinary circumstances, some commentators who normally oppose web censorship were untroubled. An exception who deserves to be listened...
